LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---A rollover accident on Interstate 71 has killed one person.  LMPD officials say the crash happened just north of the Gene Snyder on I-71 southbound.

The coroner's office says 55-year-old Charles Chamberlain of Barren Springs, Virginia died of his injuries at 8:20 p.m. on Sunday.

Witnesses say a Chevy Blazer was driving erratic in the fast lane, when one of the tires ran off the road.  Police say it appears the driver overcorrected, and his vehicle then overturned.

They say the driver was ejected. They describe him as a man in his 50's, and say he wasn't wearing a seat belt.  

The right lane of I-71 South was closed for approximately three hours.
